The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker
A dazzling story of female friendship, the cost of a creative life, and the secrets that can undo us. At a private East Coast college, two outsiders meet in art class. Mel is brash, brilliant, and wild.
Sharon is shy, lovelorn, but ambitious. Together, they become an award-winning animation duo, living and working in Brooklyn, making short autobiographical films. But when the pair decide to base a new project on a long-buried childhood encounter, it forces them to examine the relationships they have with their families, lovers, and even each other.
